Ellen Reveals Her Latest Addiction

Ellen Reveals Her Latest Addiction


You’re here for a very–
a very important day. My name is Ellen
DeGeneres and I’m addicted to playing games on my phone. [LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE] I’m an app-aholic. [LAUGHTER] That’s the part where you
supposed to say, hi, Ellen. Hi, Ellen. Thank you. Of course, I play my own
games, you know, Heads Up!, and Hot Hands, and
PSYCH!, and Game of Games, and Dice With Ellen, and
Ellen’s Road to Riches. But I also play games
that I did not invent. And somehow I got hooked on– I found this game
called Word Stacks. Does anybody play Word Stacks. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Yes? I am so– it’s so
addicting, isn’t it? It’s so good. And if you– you have
to find a hidden word. And they can be backwards or–
they’re not diagonal ever, but they’re backwards or
horizontal or vertical. Anyway, the good news
is, it’s free, sort of. [LAUGHTER] It’s free to download. But then if you want clues,
you have to start paying. It’s the same business
model as cocaine. [LAUGHTER] And– first time, it’s free. And then next thing you know,
you’re living in a stack house. [LAUGHTER] I have spent so much
money on this game, like, a lot of money. And I’m very wealthy. So when I say, a lot, picture
what you had in mind and then triple that. That’s how much I’ve spent. So if you’re
interested in playing but don’t want to
spend money, that’s no problem because I’ve
come up with my own version. It’s totally free. And we’re going to play
Ellen’s Word Stacks right now. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] [MUSIC PLAYING] [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
CONTINUES] All right. If you see your name on
the screen, come on down. [MUSIC PLAYING] [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Oh, my god! Hi, hi, hi. It is so nice to meet you. You’ll go under your– your
name, whichever your name is. You’ll stand there. [LAUGHTER] Thank you. OK. So you know how the game is. What I did– what I
just described, is you look for a word. First person who
sees a word, ring in. And then you can look
behind you and show us where it is exactly because we
don’t have the technology yet to– [LAUGHTER] –to do it like we do it
we do it on the phone, OK? Go. [MUSIC PLAYING] Faster than a hare. [BUZZ] Light? Probably is. Light. Oh. Yes! [APPLAUSE] Simran, good one. Thank you. All right. Keep going. [BUZZ] Simran? Rocket? Rocket. Yes. Oh, my gosh. Where do you see it? Yes. There. [APPLAUSE] All right. I see another one. Anybody else? Yeah. Yeah. But you’re not playing hold. [LAUGHTER] [BUZZ] Yes. Comet? Comet, let’s see it. Yes. Oh, my gosh! Yes. I know. Come on. There’s another one
that’s right there. Some of them are really– [BUZZ] Yeah? Falcon? Falcon is– that’s right. Oh! Falcon! All right. So now– now Falcon
moves– now, yes? Sound! Yes, sound. [BUZZ] All right. Simran? Cheetah. Cheetah. Yes. Cheetah. [BUZZ] Race– racecar. Racecar! Yes. [BUZZ] I got you. All right. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Isn’t that fun? So fun! And then you go to the next
round, and the next round. Oh. I’m on level, like,
646 right now. [LAUGHTER] And I’ve gotten everybody
here hooked on it. Anyway, congratulations. You win. You also win. You played for free. And you’re also going to
play on this new iPad. [GASPS, SCREAMS] [APPLAUSE] All right.
